I keep turning a business idea around in my head. According to Quicken it's already cost me $20k. I hope I can make it work - but ye gods I don't wanna do 26 credits in my spare time ever again. On the plus side, I got like a 3.8 GPA (not that anyone will ever care). Also just booked a trip to IMTS in Chicago to help determine how many hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of machine tools I will eventually need to buy.
I've talked to four of them in the past week. They've all been "You should go to IMTS. We only do it every two years and all the shops I would send you to to see our stuff are locked down and proprietary."
